Broad Canyon




Plate 105. BROAD CANYON: 1946 - 1999 The view is over the head of Broad Canyon to Jacks Peak. This is just to the left of Plate 104 and shows the area prior to contour trenching and seeding. Conifers blocked the 1946 photo point and required shifting the 1999 retake approximately 100 feet north. The area was later contour trenched and seeded. Aspen (Populus tremuloides) is taller in 1999 than in the 1946 photo, but it has not regenerated.
